Listen to Blake Shelton’s Funny Song ‘Money’ From ‘Texoma Shore’
Blake Shelton is known for his quick-witted sense of humor, and he shows it off in his new song “Money” from his upcoming album Texoma Shore.
Shelton shared the track just one day before the full album release on Friday (Nov. 3), giving fans another taste of what to expect. Penned by Craig Wiseman, James Bailey and Ryan Ogren, the singer details a life of living in squalor filled with bouncing rent checks, frequent Ramen meals and cheap, one-ply toilet paper. But none of this matters because the love of his life makes him feel like the richest man in the world.
“Hey girl / Got that million dollar kiss / Know just what to do with it / Get me feeling filthy rich,” he sings about her in the chorus.

“This is one of those songs that’s just fun,” Shelton says about the clever track in a press release. “It’s meant to be fun, it’s ridiculous and it’s Craig Wiseman at his best. This is one of those songs that I’m just thankful that, for whatever reason, Craig [sent to me]. He always sends me a gem over for each one of my albums, and this song I think is special. It has the potential to be remembered for a very, very long time.”
“Money” is just one of the tracks that Shelton has released as a gift to fans leading up to the album’s release, alongside lead single “I’ll Name the Dogs,” “I Lived It,” “At the House” and “Turnin’ Me On,” the latter two which are inspired by girlfriend Gwen Stefani. Shelton is set to hit the road on the 2018 Country Music Freaks Tour with Trace Adkins, Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce.
